You will climb to the top of Shelving Rock Mountain and then down to the shore past Shelving Rock Falls. This is a fun hike exploring the Shelving Rock Mountain area on the east side of Lake George. You will climb to the top of Shelving Rock Mountain for views down to the lake and then explore the shoreline around Log Bay and Shelving Rock Bay. You'll pass by beautiful Shelving Rock Falls twice on this hike. Be careful on the rocks around the falls as they are slippery

Pending where you park, we parked lot #3, you back track along the road a bit and it takes maybe 20 minutes to get to the falls. If you go past the falls trail markings are okay and you make your way along the lake. Wish it was a bit more of an exciting hike to get to the falls. Never did make it to the peak of Shelving rock which was lot #4, maybe next time!

Misleading as it is only .4 to the falls. We walked it then hiked Buck Mountain in the same area. Very beautiful.

The Falls were incredible. Nice hike out to Lake George where we sat and had cheese and crackers. Can’t wait to do the trail up the mountain.

I do this loop around log bay/shelving rock falls quite regualry. At least three times a week or more just for cardio or a warm up before a hike. Super easy grade, nice falls, nice people, everyone says hi. Nice environmemt. Not much challenge but still a nice walk. The walk down to bottom of the falls can be a bit steep for some i imagine but just go easy.

Had a little difficulty finding the falls as we first drove right past the sign. Trails are well marked and easy to follow. Well worth it!!

Didn't end up finding the falls. In not sure how we missed it must have been one of the points on the map that you have to kind of hike back and go the other way to see.. Also the last 1/4 mile or 1/2 is blocked off by posted signs and a gate. Was a nice hike around the lake lots of boaters out and swimmers. Could easy brought my suit and jumped in to cool off. We hiked down the backside of the mountain trail less and just made out own path down to the lake. So maybe this is why we didn't see the water falls. Probably try and find it next time when we hike Buck and prospect.

Fun hike! Early spring started from Gate House and around lake! Rewarding view and distance. A gem in our own backyard.

Fairly easy hike with amazing views of Lake George on top of the mountain. The hike to the waterfall and farther down to the lake could be done by children of all ages
